Agent P's World Showcase Adventure at Epcot
This high-tech interactive game based on the Phineas and Ferb TV series takes place throughout World Showcase in Epcot.

There you'll be briefed on your mission by Agent P on how you can help stop the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz from taking over the world. Use your smartphone or a provided device to follow clues in each of the World Showcase pavilions. Interactive elements, animatronic figures and even live secret agents will help you finish each mission, and you'll earn prizes along the way. Each pavilion has a new mission and you can complete as many as you like throughout the day.
Kidcot Fun Stops at Epcot
For the younger ones in your family, Kidcot at Epcot's World Showcase is a must. It makes visiting all 11 nations around the world great fun for the little ones. Stop by any of the Kidcot Fun Spots to pick up your coloring sheet or Duffy Fan. They're usually found in a shop or near an attraction in each of the countries. Take your fan to each Fun Stop to receive a passport stamp and custom drawing from a local of that country. Kids get to decorate their fan using markers while learning about that nation's culture from people who live there. Kidcot makes World Showcase a little more kid-friendly, motivating them to visit every country to get all the stamps.
